Our Master Bedroom (updated)

It's been almost a year since I last posted photos of our bedroom which has always been a little bit of a work in progress. We got rid of my old MCM dresser and replaced it with a dresser from Restoration Hardware that semi-matches the one in the guest bedroom (pics of guest bedroom coming soon). We also replaced the prints that sat on the dresser with a mirror, took down the Indian painting b's grandma painted and replaced it with a couple vintage paint-by-numbers, got some proper nightstand lamps and added a couple of plants. There's still a little more I would like to do with this room - like add some more artwork - but we're not going to rush it.


2019


Happy New Year, friends! B and I rang it in by going to bed at 11pm... I promise we tried to stay up, haha! 

I figured I'd come here and right down my goals and intentions for this year. I love Woody Guthrie's "New Years Rulin's" shown above. The best thing about a new year is starting fresh and making plans, so here they are:

1. NO SHOPPING (say WHAAAAAAA?!)

What I mean is that I'm taking the year off of clothes shopping for myself. This doesn't include buying stuff for the home, our wedding, or gifts for others and I will buy essentials when needed (underwear, bras, makeup, etc....). I've been contemplating this for a long time now and it's just something that I need to do. I wouldn't say I have an online shopping addiction or a ton a clothes, but I have everything that I need. Plus, I want to pay off my credit card and start working on my school loans. Did I mention we have a wedding coming up too?

2. EAT HEALTHIER

I don't think B and I eat bad at all, but for the month of December I don't think I consumed any fruits or vegetables (unless pizza sauce counts?). We went gluten free for a while and I definitely want to hop back on that train (making exceptions here and there though).

3. WORK OUT

I haven't worked out in a really long time. I used to practice yoga and I definitely want to start doing it again because it makes me feel better (imagine that!).

4. DRINK MORE WATER (and way less booze)

Because, duh!

5. READ MORE

6. WRITE DOWN THINGS I'M GRATEFUL FOR

Mostly this is good for the soul. I feel like sometimes we forget how grateful we are.

7. TRAVEL OFTEN

8. BLOG MORE



Of course I have other things I'd like to accomplish, but these are just the basics. Do you make resolutions? if so, what goals do you set for yourself?

Holiday home

Hiiiiiiiiiiii friends (and mom)! If you follow us on instagram, you've probably seen some rendition of these photos posted below. We hosted our neighborhood Christmas party last weekend which was a ton of fun, so we decked out most of the rooms in garland and twinkle lights. Our tree went up in the dining room again because our living room is so oddly shaped and our furniture is quite large. We also went wreath crazy and hung wreaths on the front windows of our house (photos coming soon... just waiting on some snow), and I even made black and white buffalo check bows.

I just know that Christmas will be here before we all know and so will the new year so I wanted to show off our decorations before it's too late.
